This came out awesome NiK!!

Thanks so much
It was great seeing you!

PS...I saw you giving him your card
Did he call you for a bloody mary? #9776396

Nikki McDonald level-classic 11/1/2011 6:36:57 AM

Thanks, all. As you may guess now that Mel has signed in, she and TK were with me when I got this shot. I agree, Heather -- the background is great for the costume and pose and it was all there for the taking. Got this in the Old Market area of Omaha Saturday afternoon and this is one of the carriage drivers dressed for Halloween. He gladly struck the pose when I asked him to. No call, Mel :( However, I did send an email to the carriage company w/ a very small jpg attached to encourage him to get in touch . . . #9776448

Nikki McDonald level-classic 11/1/2011 2:42:23 PM

Thank you so much for your enthusiasm. I wish I had entered this in the Trick or Treat theme but I goofed and did not. It's in People instead. It's also entered in consecutive months as I put it in October 31, tried to change the category the next morning, and ended up with it as my November 1 entry, too. We'll see how it all shakes out LOL #9777365
